Let's wake up the rural world
Since the mid-20th century, a large part of the rural areas have been progressively losing population, affected by economic and structural policies that have facilitated territorial imbalance and the concentration of inhabitants in large cities and certain geographical areas. Consequently, these territories have not only been affected in number, but also in services, infrastructure and opportunities.
There is a need to empower the inhabitants, particularly young people, to promote new businesses and resources that generate jobs and establish population on the ground.
➢ 75% of the country's surface is uninhabited.
➢ Of the 8,131 municipalities with less than 10,000 inhabitants in our country, 60% (almost 5,000) have less than 1,000 and 16% (about 1,300) have less than 100.
➢ The 1,300 municipalities with less than 100 inhabitants are unlikely to withstand the onslaught of depopulation, leaving villages and countryside abandoned.
➢ 85% of the population lives in a big city: Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, Seville...
➢ The demographic challenge and depopulation also affect small cities
